Nader spells out widespread hypocrisies.
Nader rightly spells out widespread hypocrisy against third party and independent campaigns. Unfortunately Americans are still underinformed by the mainstream press about any politics that aren't supportive of a corporatist state. This means all third party and independents are left out, as are some Democrats and Republicans who dare to criticize corporate power, fraud, and abuse.
Debates are very telling, and Nader explains the broken state of American debating from his own campaign and that of Sen. Hillary Clinton who, in collusion with NY1 TV in New York, wouldn't debate anti-war candidate Jonathan Tasini because Tasini's campaign hadn't raised enough money. A previous Democracy Now! show explored this issue, it's worth looking up if you want to learn just how much of a money-driven sham American politics are (and how hard the corporatists like Clinton try to make it seem otherwise).
